One of Bee Happy Essential’s signature sugar scrubs is our Beach Bum Café Coffee Sugar Scrub. This is truly a decadent scrub with amazing exfoliating power! But, did you know that coffee grounds have amazing benefits for you skin?
You wouldn’t want to rub this morning’s leftover dry coffee grounds on your skin (ouch!), but when you combine quality coffee grounds with other natural ingredients to create a coffee scrub, the benefits for your skin are immediately noticeable.
Coffee scrub has several benefits that include: exfoliating and anti-inflammatory properties, temporary reduction of cellulite, improved circulation, reduced eye puffiness, and smooth skin.
By applying to the skin in a gentle circular motion, coffee scrub exfoliates the skin, removing your dry, dead skin, to reveal new, healthy-looking skin underneath.
Aside from the amazing exfoliation that coffee scrub provides, it also has another secret weapon for your skin: caffeine.
Benefits of Caffeine
Caffeine is a compound that is found abundantly in tea and coffee plants around the world. Technically a psychoactive drug, caffeine has become the world’s most popular stimulant because it works so effectively.
While we all know the benefits that caffeine has on the mind and body when we drink a cup of coffee, the lesser known benefits are the effects it has when we apply it to our skin.
- Caffeine helps tighten the skin, which can help reduce cellulite. When applied under and around the eyes, it can minimize the appearance of puffy eyes because caffeine restricts blood vessels, which reduces swelling and inflammation. It can also help treat non-hereditary dark circles under the eyes.
- Caffeine is also loaded with antioxidants, which help to fight premature skin aging like wrinkles, sun spots, and fine lines.
We offer our Beach Bum Café Coffee Sugar Scrub in 8 oz. glass jars. Our sugar scrub is made with organic brown sugar, organic coffee, organic coconut oil, vitamin e, and pure vanilla extract.
